While I’ve been loving the crop top look on other people, I never considered it as something I could pull off. I am certainly not model thin and don’t have rock-hard abs, but after seeing the the midi skirt + cropped look everywhere I figured I might give it a try! No harm, no foul, right? Let’s just say I was more than pleasantly surprised. I was expecting to be turned off by how I looked in a crop top because my mid-section has never been my best asset, but what’s great about pairing a crop top with a high-waist midi skirt is that you barely even see a sliver of skin. You get to wear the cropped look without feeling or looking bare – genius! While a fully cropped look is not in my future, I am proud of myself for stepping out of my comfort zone and giving this look a try. I believe this cropped top by Apiece Apart will become very useful in the scorching summer months here in Texas, don’t you? I’m tempted to also get it in black for fall, however I’ll likely throw a jacket over my shoulders for a more sophisticated look when that time comes.

    This is the perfect way to wear a crop top. It’s just a hint of skin. Tasteful yet fun. I’d love it in black too with black cigarette pants and a great pair of JImmy Choo pumps!
